Following the experiential campaigns for Hovis' Soft White and Best of Both ranges this year, the brand has brought in Hot Pickle to create a fully integrated multi-agency campaign with experiential at its core.

Sophie Lyons, marketing manager at Hovis said: "Hot Pickle demonstrated a genuine affinity with the brand and stood out with a combination of smart strategic thinking and a killer creative idea. They also have an impressive FMCG portfolio and we’re looking forward to a great experience in 2017."

The agency won the account following a competitive pitch during October and November, and will be working with a number of other agencies to extend the reach of the activation across multiple channels.

Andrew St Clair Johnson, partner at Hot Pickle said: "We are extremely excited and proud to be working with Hovis. It’s a great opportunity to demonstrate the potential of events and experiential to sit at the heart of a campaign and to drive content across channels."
